We took a sudden detour from our journey to Texas when my husband saw the sign for the Bonnie and Clyde Ambush Museum in Gibsland, La. If you're looking for authenticity in the Bonnie and Clyde story, look no farther than here. The museum is housed in the cafe where Bonnie and Clyde bought their last meal -- sandwiches. The museum's curator is Boots Hinton, the son of one of the law enforcement officials who killed Bonnie and Clyde not far from the downtown area of Gibsland. You begin the tour by watching a documentary narrated by Boots and then continue, at your own pace, the look through memorabilia, newspaper clippings and photos that capture the story of these outlaws. Be prepared to catch your breath when you see actual items that Bonnie wore the day she was killed in a display case. It's interesting and sad, all at the same time. My family and I definitely came away with a better understanding of the Bonnie and Clyde story.
